It's 1288, and the king's fool, Pocket, and his dimwit apprentice, Drool, set out to clean up the mess Lear has made of his kingdom., BTCTABTCTAUMRTnLvILS, Britons, Christopher Moore, much beloved scrivener and peerless literary jester, now takes on no less than the legendary Bard himself (with the utmost humility and respect) with a twisted and insanely funny tale of a moronic monarch and his deceitful daughters, as seen through the eyes of a man wearing a codpiece and bells on his head. Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of . . . well . . . stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot. Well now the bangers and mash have really hit the fan. And the only person who can possibly make things right . . . is Pocket. Now he's going to have do some very fancy maneuvering-cast some spells, start a war or two-the usual stuff-to get Cordelia back into Daddy Lear's good graces, to derail the fiendish power plays of Cordelia's twisted sisters, and to shag every lusciously shaggable wench who's amenable to shagging along the way. Pocket may be a fool . . . but he's definitely not an idiot., Copyright date 2009., Digital content provided by hoopla., FIC MOORE, FIC000000, FICTION / General, Fool /Christopher Moore., FoolChristopher Moore., Fools and jesters, Historical fiction., Humorous fiction., IG$A, Includes an excerpt from "Bite me : a love story.", Inheritance and succession, Kings and rulers, Lear, King (Legendary character), Lear,King of England (Legendary character), MWT11586656, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Moore, Christopher,1957-, Morton, Euan,1977-, New York :Harper,2010., PS3563.O594F65 2010, Read by Euan Morton., Unabridged., [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers,2009., [xix], 328 p. :map ;21 cm., computerc, data file, digital, e-uk---, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital.,, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw
